New series adds support for Intel Sandy Bridge processors.
Golden Systems Middle East, a leading distributor of IT products, today announced the launch of GIGABYTE’s latest generation of motherboards for the new 2nd generation Intel Core processors (aka Sandy Bridge) in the Middle East. The new series of motherboards are based on the Intel P67 and H67 Express Chipsets, and deliver a host of cutting-edge features designed to provide Maximum CPU Power.
GIGABYTE 6-series motherboards support dual channel DDR3 memory for blazing fast memory performance of 2200MHz and above through the integrated memory controller of 2nd generation Intel Core CPUs. Additionally, these CPUs feature Intel® Turbo Boost 2.0 Technology, which is able to power down idle processor cores and dynamically reroute the power to the active cores for significant performance boosts, and at the same time, maintain greater energy efficiency.
Key GIGABYTE technologies featured on these motherboards include an industry-leading 24 phase power design, an Intel approved Intersil VRD 12 (Voltage Regulator Down) compliant PWM controller, Dual CPU Power, Driver MOSFETs (the new addition to GIGABYTE’s signature Ultra Durable 3 features), proprietary DualBIOS 3TB+ HDD technology, 10 USB 3.0 ports (total of 18 USB ports with 8 USB 2.0), 3-Way SLI/CrossFireX support, 3x USB Power, On/Off Charge and more…
“We are pleased to launch GIGABYTE Technologies’ latest range of 6 series motherboards in the Middle East region. GIGABYTE has been the leader in technology innovation and its new 6-series motherboard range is another example of the company’s commitment to delivering only the best in technology to its customers. We are sure the new range of GIGABYTE 6-series motherboards will surpass all expectations in this region,” says Mr. Iman Mozaffari, Senior Manager, Golden Systems Middle East.
An extensive range of GIGABYTE 6 series motherboards will be available at launch with ten ATX models and seven Micro-ATX models to choose from. They follow GIGABYTE’s normal naming scheme with the P67A-UD7 down to the H67M-D2. Notably, there are 3 models that target the SMB (Small and Medium Business) market, namely the B65M-D2, B65M-D2 and Q67M-S2H. Additional models are planned to launch throughout the first and second quarters, with an estimated 40+ GIGABYTE socket 1155 models available by the middle of 2011.
“This is the most important launch that we’ve had in recent years, because we expect the LGA 1155 socket to be around for many years to come,” commented Tim Handley, Deputy Director of Motherboard Marketing at GIGABYTE. “That’s why we’re planning to offer almost 50 different models by the middle of the year. It’s exciting for us to incorporate many of the high-end features on mainstream and entry level boards, such as the Max CPU Power VRM design that was first introduced on the X58A-UD9, to give our products a serious competitive advantage in the market. We’re more than just ready for Sandy Bridge, we’re eagerly looking forward to it!”
